Details

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

  • Over the top, impossible, unreal, far fetched

  • first class Marvel movie. better than the first one. characters drawn out better.

  • Good watchable entertainment.

  • Very enjoyable - this Peter Parker was waaaay more watchable than the annoyingly wimpy Toby Maguire.

  • We enjoyed this one a bit more than the ones starring Toby Maguire - it was a bit more 'slick' and much more Hollywood. Will come down to personal preference I think (which one you will enjoy better) this one had some good stunts and was almost comical in parts (example: him going 'woo hoo' as he swings through the city on his 'webs'). Liked it.
